NFRC RoofCERT ROOFING ACCREDITATION

UK roofers are among the best in the world but unqualified and inexperienced rogue traders too often give everyone else a bad name. It’s therefore time to elevate the pride and professionalism of individual roofers who do the right thing, by giving them the proof that they can roof.

 

This is where RoofCERT comes in. Managed by NFRC, it is the UK’s only national roofing accreditation scheme that gives clients and homeowners the confidence that the people working on their roofs can do the job properly.  The NFRC, with support from across the industry, will help existing operatives entering the scheme to demonstrate their technical knowledge and essential skills, enabling them to establish a lifelong career path and prove their competence to employers and client.

  • provides individual roofers with visible proof of their essential roofing skills

  • reinforces the pride of skilled roofers, who’ve worked hard to get where they are

  • confirms that a business employs fully-qualified roofing operatives, who can do the job safely and properly

  • helps homeowners avoid the cowboys, by recognising the professionals

 

The SWRTG can help even if you don't currently have the requirements. 

 

To become RoofCERT accredited, you will need to have over 3 years of experience in the roofing sector and you have successfully completed the following course and NVQ:

 

  • asbestos awareness

  • abrasive wheels

  • manual handlingworking at height

  • fire safety

  • emergency first aid

  • roofing NVQ/SVQ

 

The next step would be the knowledge test which is taken on a laptop/tablet.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please contact Nichola for further details.  The RoofCERT accreditation process is currently free!

UKATA ASBESTOS TRAINING IN THE SOUTH WEST

We’ve all heard the word asbestos, but do you know that over 5,000 people die from asbestos related illness in the UK each year.  Understanding the dangers of asbestos is especially important for those working in the construction industry.  This is why the South West Roofing Training Group has teamed up with Clive Chamberlain from Wiltshire based M4 Property Solutions Limited to provide UKATA approved asbestos related training in the South West.

Clive and M4 Property Solutions have been a UKATA member for over 10 years has been delivering asbestos related training for 12 years and is well versed in explaining the dangers to his clients – he even sat on the UKATA board of Directors from 2015 – 2017.  He has now audited and approved Alan Lander, who works as a trainer and assessor for the South West Roofing Training Group to deliver UKATA certificated asbestos awareness training (CAT A) in the South West as an approved trainer for M4 Property Solutions. 

However, the UKATA Asbestos awareness course is not enough to work with any forms of asbestos because it does not meet the legal requirements laid down under Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, which is why Alan is working with M4 Property Solutions and is very near to gaining approval to deliver non-licensed training (CAT B) and refresher training in the South West. 

If need more information, or to book a course, call Tel: 01395 233 667 or email: gto@swrtg.co.uk
